To be honest, I'm not certain this was truly the first watermelon introduction for both the donks and the chickens. But I am certain it was the first time I had cut up a whole melon and offered chunks to all.
At first blush, the donks said no thanks.
Actually I continued to find if they were offered hay prior to the fruit, they chose hay each time. But then they decided it was OK to gobble the watermelon after their main course.
The juice is running off of Spice's lips. Pretty funny.
Luigi's tongue is saying, "yummm".
The girls check on remnants.
Did those darn donkeys leave anything at all??
And then they discover they have their own delectable portion.
Official experiment conclusion: Donkeys greedily gobble, rind and all. Girls pick off every sweet morsel, but leave the rind. Everyone votes thumbs up!
